A Primark Baby Haul

So Last week on my Instagram stories, I shared that I’d been for a trip to Primark and picked up some pieces for Freya in the next couple of sizes up. I wanted to do a little post on what I’d picked up but as they are for the next couple of sizes up rather than now, I’ll have to share Baby OOTD pictures at a later date of her modelling them. I got a lot more 9-12 months as we have a hefty amount of 6-9 month clothing already.

First up I picked up this pack of 2 leggings in Turquoise and Pink with Unicorn Print in 9-12 months for a bargain price of £3. I love them so much so I may well go back and buy the 6-9 months as well.

Tune in, Switch off, Relax… with Joy

Last week after what was already a busy couple of days, I attended the Tune in, Switch off, Relax event at Joy the Store in Leeds. The purpose of the event was to bring bloggers and members of the public into the store to browse, enjoy a nail treatment from Nails Inc and then to take part in some Yoga.

I was greeted by the lovely Jennie who had organised the event and offered a delicious smoothie whilst I browsed the store and waited for the Nails Inc folks to get set up.

So here is an update on how we’ve been doing with saving money and some of my best advice for those of you in a similar position or those just wanting saving tips.

I’ve worked in the Financial sector for 8 years and worked overall since I was 16. I’ve always been a saver having saved the deposit for our house and scrimped alongside hubby to have some fantastic holidays over the years. When it came to thinking about children, we always knew that they would cost us a bit and having a plan would be the only way forward.

Our first step in saving money was to set aside money each month from our wages and put it in a separate savings account. Step 1 achieved and ongoing until maternity leave commences.

Next step was to review our outgoings and see what could be cut back/saved.
